Statement by Sen. Brad Hoylman on A.G. Schneiderman’s Request for an Executive Order Allowing Him to Investigate Cases Involving Unarmed Civilians Killed By Police Officers

State Senator Brad Hoylman (D-Manhattan) today released the following statement regarding Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s request for an executive order that would allow the Office of the Attorney General to investigate and, if necessary, prosecute cases involving unarmed civilians killed by police officers.“A local grand jury’s failure to bring an indictment after the tragic death of Eric Garner has highlighted serious flaws in our judicial process. An executive order appointing Attorney General Schneiderman as a special prosecutor in future criminal proceedings brought against police officers would help ensure independence and integrity in our criminal justice system.  I wholeheartedly support it.”
